Congrats to winners Rebecca and Jeanette!
Sorry for the unannounced hiatus in giveaways over the holidays! My daughter has been out of school for two weeks, which means I’ve not been doing much knitting or much writing about knitting.

But the good news is she’s gone back to school (grin) and I’m back to work with a great giveaway this week: two copies of 60 Quick Knits from America’s Yarn Shops.

If you know about the 60 quick knits books, you know they’re a collection of lots of different patterns using Cascade yarns, in this case all Cascade 220 and 220 superwash. These are great, inexpensive, versatile yarns that come in an amazing variety of colors, so within this already wide selection of patterns you have even more room for individuality by choosing your own colors.

There will be two winners who will each receive one copy of the book. To enter for your chance to win, add a comment to this post before the end of the day Sunday, January 12. Since it’s the beginning of the year, tell me if you have a craft-related new year’s resolution. (Doesn’t have to be about knitting.)

Thanks for visiting and good luck!

  7. Andrea Coz on January 6, 2014 12:33 pm

    This year my mom and I are going to make everyone personalized birthday cards. I’m one of 10 children with 15 nieces and nephews so we decided this would be a less expensive and more personal way to show our love on their birthdays. The first one we did was scrapbook style with tags from each of us to wish my big sis a happy bday.

  8. Leslie Mills on January 6, 2014 12:37 pm

    I would love to get my craft room organized and get myself set up to maybe start a small business with my crafts. That is my resolution for the year. :)

  10. Karen on January 6, 2014 12:38 pm

    My “adopted” big sister and I have committed to making mats for the homeless from plarn. We live in different states so it’s our way of doing something together without being together. Excited about it! My other is to relearn to knit this year, my Nan taught me when I was very young but found all other types of crafts that I loved.

  11. Roxane on January 6, 2014 12:42 pm

  17. Ruth Q on January 6, 2014 12:53 pm

    Sound great! This year I want to learn to knit. I kind of know the basics but that darn first row dis encourages me. I already crochet and love it so two needles instead of one hook is a challenge for me. Thanks for the giveaway.

  33. Leslie on January 6, 2014 2:19 pm

  34. Carolyn day on January 6, 2014 2:22 pm

    To try new stitches and charity projects

  35. Marcia on January 6, 2014 2:39 pm

  36. Heather Mentzer on January 6, 2014 2:47 pm

    I’m not using any yarn or fabric I don’t already have. I really need to finish projects I’ve already started and use supplies I already have.

  37. Carolyn on January 6, 2014 3:23 pm

    I see that my resolution isn’t very unique. I’m also aiming to knit up stash with more giftable projects, so next Christmas I’ll be able to choose some nice gifts to give. This book looks like just what I need :-)

  38. Maureen on January 6, 2014 3:29 pm

  43. Marcie on January 6, 2014 3:52 pm

    My new year’s resolution is to do a little bit of crafting everyday. Whether it’s Knitting, Scrapbooking or other cool projects I find online. I’m a crafter in my heart. Too bad I have to work.

  44. Becky in Georgia on January 6, 2014 3:59 pm

    I enjoy quilting and knitting. My resolution this year is to enjoy the projects I choose to work on. I’m not concentrating on any specific projects. I’ll work on the ones that make me happy:)

  45. Diane S. on January 6, 2014 4:06 pm

    No resolutions but plan on knitting since the weather has been keeping us indoors here in Minnesota.

  46. Denyalle on January 6, 2014 4:24 pm

    I didn’t set a specific resolution for New Years, but my goal is to get a good craft table, and a hutch/cabinet for my studio so I can better organize and craft.

  47. meg karetny on January 6, 2014 4:35 pm

    Keep it all organized, no matter what! :)

  48. Jami on January 6, 2014 4:38 pm

    To spend more time knitting, maybe try a sweater.

  49. Kathleen Hartley on January 6, 2014 4:56 pm

    My daughter is here until the end of this week and then back to school, but we decided to learn how to knit – together…this book would be a great reward! Thank you.

  51. Justine on January 6, 2014 5:35 pm

    my plan for 2014 (I’ve stopped calling them resolutions) is to feed my soul by creating something every day. so far I’ve done three hats , started a fourth, and made good progress on a new shawl (the first thing I’ve knit for myself in nearly twenty years!)

  52. Christy on January 6, 2014 5:55 pm

    I need to finish all the mostly finished projects that are hiding around my house. I’m a terrible finisher!

  53. Lisa on January 6, 2014 6:11 pm

    Oh I would love to win! Thank you & happy knitting!

  54. jonquil on January 6, 2014 6:38 pm

    My needlework goals for 2014 are to finish the Frost Goddess & put the beads & backing on the three grandchildren’s stockings. For knitting it is to finish 4 lap-ghans as gifts. I would also like to finish a few small knit projects for myself! (If school is out *again* tomorrow, I will be Perturbed)

  66. Jennifer on January 6, 2014 11:15 pm

  68. remee on January 7, 2014 12:21 am

    Clear my stash and organize my sewing supplies!

    Love this site. Btw

  69. Siaron on January 7, 2014 12:37 am

    Organise my craft attic! It’s a mess. Just need to brave the cold and get up there.

  70. MelodyJ on January 7, 2014 12:37 am

    I want to learn new crafts.

  71. Linda Rumsey on January 7, 2014 2:21 am

    I want to organize my stash and try to finish off some of my wips (both cross stitch and knitting) when I can find them!

  72. Debi Smit on January 7, 2014 2:34 am

    My resolution is to stop buying yarn until I work my way thru the yarn that I already have. This book would be a wonderful way to help me with my resolution. :)

  73. Antidigger on January 7, 2014 3:42 am

    I’ve taken on a big knitting project, that is my ambition to finish this year, but in order to do that I’ll need some little projects to re-fire my enthusiasm when it flags. Something that knits up quick will be ideal.

  74. Patrice on January 7, 2014 5:58 am

    I want to get started on Winter projects in the summer, so they are ready for the cold weather. I’m always finishing hats and scarves in January and February when they are really needed!

  75. Betty on January 7, 2014 6:25 am

    My word of the year is, “Artistry”. I will try to apply artistry to my knit and crochet projects in 2014.

  76. Rebecca Fraser on January 7, 2014 6:47 am

    Would love to win this book as it fits perfectly with my new year’s resolution to knit more small projects so I finish the things that I knit! I have too many half done projects that I got bogged down by halfway through. So I’ll be working on finishing them, but mostly I’m looking for smaller projects to do! Thanks for considering me. :-)

  77. Charlene on January 7, 2014 7:27 am

    I have many ufo’s this year, and I’m going to finish or donate all of them!

  78. Linda on January 7, 2014 7:44 am

    I know everybody says it but I’m focusing on UFO’s

  79. Wendi on January 7, 2014 8:03 am

    I have always made scarves and lap blankets. I am determined this year to actually learn to follow a pattern and make a pair of thick, chunky socks. I would love to win this book and try out some of the ideas. Thanks for the giveaway!

  80. Mango on January 7, 2014 8:19 am

    My craft-related plans for the year include increasing my tech edit client list.

    Love this book, thanks for the opportunity to win one!

  81. Amy McGlynn on January 7, 2014 8:28 am

    I usually have a Nearly All Handmade Holiday, and am casting around for ideas for 2014. My resolution this year is to knit one thing from stash for each project I buy yarn to make.

  82. Wendy Day on January 7, 2014 8:33 am

    My resolution is to organize my craft room so I can find what I need to craft!

  83. Sheryl on January 7, 2014 8:54 am

    I plan to use up my stash this year…. I make that resolution every year… I always break it when I find get a new knitting book.

  84. Teresa Bullock on January 7, 2014 9:24 am

    My crafting New Year’s resolution is to get my yarn stash in order, make a hanging organizer for all my knitting needles and crochet hooks, and to rug hook more this year!

  85. Ann Devine on January 7, 2014 9:34 am

    This year, I intend to use my sewing machine more than twice! And to knit more from stash, always a resolution but rarely done.

  86. Patricia P. Hall on January 7, 2014 9:34 am

    I joined the Ready to Wear Fast and will not be purchasing any manufactured clothing this year. That means I will sew or knit what I need! Just gives me a challenge to do what I love to do anyway! I think this book would be great for my knitting group to share!

  87. Rose S. on January 7, 2014 9:35 am

    My resolution is to make more hats and scarves and get them to the Police department so they can have them in their squad cars to give to people who need them to keep warm.

  88. janet beck on January 7, 2014 9:38 am

    I would love to get my craft room organized. I have several different crafts trying to share one room which adds a challenge.

  89. Mary Rok on January 7, 2014 9:38 am

    My grand daughter wants my to crochet these little ‘monsters’ she saw in a book. I need to find a pattern for them.

  90. Marilyn (Merry) Fenton on January 7, 2014 9:41 am

    Not a resolution but I’d like to finish some of my projects that have been languishing for a long time.
    wahoomerryf on Rav

  91. Anne Marie on January 7, 2014 9:42 am

    Resolution – knit from stash. How long do you suppose that one will last?! Ha ha!

  92. Connie Kline on January 7, 2014 9:42 am

    I would love to have a copy of this book! A great way to get a head start on next Christmas.

  93. knittingdancer on January 7, 2014 9:44 am

    I am going to try to use my yarn stash if at all possible when starting a new project. I have one hiberating WIP I want to finish this year.

  94. SH on January 7, 2014 9:55 am

    Being as my stash is exploding, I could sure use this one!

  95. Barbara on January 7, 2014 10:04 am

    I need to get things done! Is that a resolution or an ongoing dilemma???? Thanks for the chance to start one more thing!

  96. Theresa on January 7, 2014 10:06 am

    I have already started on my resolution which is to ORGANIZE and USE. I had so many craft supplies stashed here and there so I went and got everything together, sorted by color and now have my scrapbooking, yarns and crochet cotton all neat and organized. It is surprising to see how much stash I have once it is altogether in one place!! On to the USE part–I am gathering patterns to use up all the smaller skeins of yarn. Donated some smaller fabric yardage to the nursing home. Found a pattern to make caddies for the walkers so I would like to make a bunch for the nursing home residents.

  97. Nancy on January 7, 2014 10:09 am

    What perfect timing!! I am a avid Crocheter who wants to learn how to knit. Over the Holidays my daughter helped me pick out some different size Needles and Yarn for projects with the Needles, and of course the Yarn in from my favorite Manufacturer, Cascade!!

    I would just Love to win one of these Books!!

    Thanks so much!!

  98. Christine on January 7, 2014 10:10 am

    I hope to finally create a knitting room…..I’ve been collecting ideas for the past couple of years.

  99. Gloria on January 7, 2014 10:16 am

    My crafty resolution is to complete something from my unfinished pile before I start something new. Good thing resolutions are meant to be broken : )

  100. Jacqueline on January 7, 2014 10:17 am

    I love to knit and I’d love to try out the patterns in this book. Here’s hoping I’m the lucky winner.

  101. Jane S. on January 7, 2014 10:17 am

    This year I’m planning on having a lot more “finishes” and maybe not so many “starts”. I’ve got enough projects to keep me busy for years, time to get some of them all done up and taken care of! Thank you for the nice giveaway — that looks like a great book. :)

  102. taryn on January 7, 2014 10:18 am

    I got a loom for my birthday and can’t wait to weave!

  103. Mary Thomas on January 7, 2014 10:22 am

    I have been wanting to learn to knit and I think this book would be perfect! I am focusing on my health this year, and doing all I can to keep healthy physically and mentally! That means lots of me/craft time :)

  104. Lois Grabash on January 7, 2014 10:22 am

    I need to finish a knit baby blanket and a whole-cloth lap quilt, then I can cast on something new.

  105. Mary Lee on January 7, 2014 10:28 am

    Yes! My resolution is to finish or get rid of any half-completed project that is older than our youngest grandson. (He’s 7!) I suppose that should include the size 4 sweater I started when his 16-year-old cousin could have worn it. I need QUICK projects–this book must have my name all over it.

  106. Barbara on January 7, 2014 10:36 am

    I need to finish stuff from 2013 and shamefully from before.

  107. missy k on January 7, 2014 10:45 am

    Looks like a good book. A very nice yarn.

  108. missy k on January 7, 2014 10:45 am

    New years resolution…same as last year…finish what I started.

  109. Pura on January 7, 2014 10:47 am

    Knitting is my passion, and I own a lot of knitting books, but one more will make me very happy, so lets win.

  110. Gina Douthit on January 7, 2014 10:50 am

    Great giveaway! My knitting resolution is to learn double knitting this year and to challenge myself with several larger projects including a cardigan I have planned.

  111. joyce on January 7, 2014 10:50 am

    I have a large number of wips and I resolve to finish them all this year.

  112. Marilyn on January 7, 2014 10:54 am

    My goal is to finish that”second” sock so I can move on to another pair!!

  113. Jeannie in TN on January 7, 2014 11:06 am

    Love this!

  114. Jen on January 7, 2014 11:29 am

    I need to knit more but I want to learn something crafty like maybe cross stitch.

  115. Stacy M on January 7, 2014 11:32 am

    No real craft related resolution. I just want to focus more on getting things accomplished.

  116. Linda R. on January 7, 2014 11:37 am

    I haven’t knitted in so long. It is my favorite craft, but I got involved with hand making cards, sewing, etc.. When I received this blog I realized how much I missed it. I would love to win the book and get going again.

  117. Elena T on January 7, 2014 12:26 pm

    Love Cascade 220 for making felted hats. My resolution is to give higher priority to my creative time – it always seems to be lowest on the list.

  118. OHSue on January 7, 2014 12:34 pm

    My goal this year is to do a pair of socks a month… wish me luck!

  119. joanne carpenter on January 7, 2014 12:45 pm

    I am going to work on organizing my sewing/craft room in 2014. Wish me luck!

  120. Pat on January 7, 2014 12:46 pm

    My resolution is to work on a filet crochet wall hanging that will be used at my daughters September first wedding.

  121. Catherine on January 7, 2014 1:04 pm

    First, to complete a project each month with yarn in my stash. Two, to organize all the knitting magazines I own before bringing any new ones home. Three, to complete a pair of socks instead of getting one half-done and then ripping it apart.
    Thank you for the contest. I would really enjoy winning this book.

  122. Lindsay Alcock on January 7, 2014 1:12 pm

    I plan to knit something for myself since I’ve given away everything I’ve ever knit so far. Love quick projects…makes me feel so accomplished. :)

  123. JO on January 7, 2014 1:20 pm

    looks like a great book!
    my plans will be to continue enjoying what I’ve been doing… knitting, paper crafting & providing free art & crafting classes for neighborhood kids

  124. Tina S on January 7, 2014 1:51 pm

    I’m a fairly new knitter, comfortable with the knit, purl, and slip stitch as well as casting on and binding off. This sounds like a perfect book to further my skills. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  125. Melanie S on January 7, 2014 3:18 pm

    Pick me… Pick me

    I just learned how to knit and can only do a washcloth. I want to learn! I vow to learn more this year!!

  126. kim on January 7, 2014 3:33 pm

    I’m a slow knitter so I could use quick projects to balance that out!!!!
    I have resolved to learn or try something new at least every other week.

  127. Kris Ann on January 7, 2014 4:31 pm

    Love these books!!! Thanks for the chance to win:0)

  128. Judy on January 7, 2014 5:44 pm

    I’d love to win this! I just want to find time to do more knitting, sewing, quilting cross stitch, anything creative! Having to work is interfering with creating!

  129. Sue on January 7, 2014 6:16 pm

    I am going to try to get all my yarn and craft supplies organized. A huge goal for me.

  130. Karey on January 7, 2014 6:54 pm

    My resolution is to complete more projects than last year!

  131. Darla on January 7, 2014 7:19 pm

    Just used Cascade Super wash 220 to knit my first pair of socks. My resolution is to learn to do the Kitchner stitch without an instructor’s help. Yikes was it confusing.


  132. Karen W on January 7, 2014 8:41 pm

    I really want to get better at knitting in the round and try some bigger projects. Just discovered the Cascade Superwash this Fall and love it.

  133. Diane Brides on January 7, 2014 8:54 pm

    Well I do believe that this year I am going to try and knit a sweater or maybe a lace shawl. I am self taught knitter so this should be a real trip!!!! But I believe that we need to get out of our comfort zones and give new things a worl!!!! Scarry but exciting

  134. Jeanette Andre on January 7, 2014 10:21 pm

    This would be perfect as we are getting a new addition to the family in March. I’m sure I will find a couple of baby items to make up for our great granddaughter we are getting, as well for the great nephew we just got before Christmas. Also granddaughter and her new husband could use a few hand knit accents around their house.

  135. Chris on January 7, 2014 10:40 pm

    I could use some new patterns for cold weather knitting.

  136. Roxanne Manuel on January 7, 2014 11:11 pm

    Please pick me I’m a beginner I want to learn everything about knitting,crocheting and making my own design with t – shirt :)

  137. Ofelia on January 8, 2014 12:36 am

    I want to make lots of crochet crafts!! if it’s possible…hehe :)
    Thank you for the giveaway.

  138. nancy d on January 8, 2014 12:57 am

    My resolution is to finish up all my UFOs.

  139. Keitha on January 8, 2014 4:38 am

    My New Year’s resolution is to find at least one hour each week for crafting and/or needlework. This doesn’t sound like much, but with my schedule, it’s a lot. I hope to be able to make more time, but wanted to work on an “achievable goal” first. This book would sure fit that scenario!! Thank you so much for the opportunity!

  140. Maggy Everett on January 8, 2014 7:53 am

    I’m a card maker who’s learning to quilt and knit and I’m starting my family tree research. My hope is to get everything organized because right now it’s all mixed together. Ugh! Space is my issue. I’m a dreamer!

  141. Cindy Sasaki on January 8, 2014 8:32 am

    My resolution is to clean up my craft table/area and keep it that way. I figure it will help me be inspired to do more instead of thinking “wow, I really need to clean that” and walking by.

  142. Jennifer Williams on January 8, 2014 9:49 am

    I have been teaching myself to knit for 6 weeks now and my resolution is to make an item for each new technique. For instance, currently I am learning short rows so I am knitting a tank top that incorporates short row shaping techniques at the hem. I would love a book to help me to learn better – must be easier than learning from the internet!

  143. Dennis Mullins Sr. on January 8, 2014 12:11 pm

    I am just learning so I would love to win. My resolutions is to finish a project before I start another. I just hope I can do it.

  144. sarah on January 8, 2014 12:17 pm

    I love quick knits. Especially with a busy schedule. But I should really finish the 3 I have on needles before I start a new one. That’s my resolution.

  145. Cassandra on January 8, 2014 2:47 pm

    I have multiple New Years craft resolutions – document and finish more projects this year, organize my craft room and use up a lot of my stash – thanks for the opportunity to win a great book

  146. Hannah on January 8, 2014 3:23 pm

    One of my craft resolution is to sew a bag. Thanks for the giveaway!

  147. geri actor on January 8, 2014 3:27 pm

    My craft-related resolution is to re-organize my stash of yarn and patterns

  148. Carmen in WI on January 8, 2014 9:28 pm

    I plan to make more hats this year for charity, to design more and to make another pair of socks.

  149. KittenWithAWhiplash on January 9, 2014 1:28 am

    No resolutions here. Thanks for the giveaway.

  150. Debbie S on January 9, 2014 6:31 am

    Try to knit from stash this year.

  151. LILLIAN on January 9, 2014 8:14 am

    I have the looms, but I would love to learn this too. I am not sure if I did the link part right. I never knew what that part meant.


  152. Kathi H on January 9, 2014 11:57 am

    Reorganize and use and reuse – my “RE” year!

  153. Margee Unger on January 9, 2014 12:14 pm

    I work at a library and would love to put these in our collection for our patrons.
    They would be of awesome use!!!!

  154. Jacqueline on January 9, 2014 4:17 pm

    Honestly my resolution is the same as it was last year, to finally finish all the knitting, crocheting and craft projects that I have started and abandoned. In an effort to make this happen I committed to blogging about it for motivation. Thank you.

  155. Stephanie on January 9, 2014 6:45 pm

    I MUST use up more of my stash- lots of single skeins in there.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  156. Sheila on January 10, 2014 12:17 am

    I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions. It just seems like setting myself up to fail. I do, however, intend to knit mainly from my stash.

  157. G. K. Green on January 10, 2014 1:41 am

    My resolution is — slightly sheepishly — to finish my resolution from 2013, which was to get organized enough to be able to find everything knitting-related (not just yarn, but needles, stitch markers, tape measures, blocking supplies, books, patterns, gauges, row counters, etc.). I made a good start by cleaning out a linen closet to devote to knitting-related items, and I got all my yarn sorted and in one place, but the rest is “pending” (as they say). Thanks for the giveaway! Happy new year to you …

  158. jenlyjen on January 10, 2014 7:10 am

    I don’t have a craft-related resolution. I feel like that would suck some of the fun out of making things if I have too many “shoulds.”

  159. Marianna B. on January 10, 2014 8:46 am

    For 2014 I want to organize my stash and use as much of it as I can by December.

  160. Beth Carroll on January 10, 2014 11:32 am

    Looking forward to finishing my first fair aisle project this year!

  162. asteride on January 10, 2014 4:30 pm

    I love to knit but this year I would really learn to sew. I’d like to make something easy and simple.

  163. Lee on January 11, 2014 3:47 am

    My craft related resolution is to quilt my quilt tops that I made the last two years! thanks!

  164. Marit Johanne on January 11, 2014 3:50 am

    This year I will not sign up for any kind of knitalongs, I will make time to knit my own choices of projects :)

  165. Charlotte on January 11, 2014 6:39 am

    my crafting resolution – get the rest of Arne & Carlos’s Christmas Balls done before next Christmas. Only 12 finished so far with the last 9 using Cascade 220 fingering weight.

  166. Judith (from Israel) on January 11, 2014 2:50 pm

    As usual, I’ve resolved not to buy any more craft supplies until I use up the lifetime supply that I’ve already bought.

  167. stephanie on January 11, 2014 2:59 pm

    i would love this. Im a new knitter and i have been looking for the perfect books, i think i could really use this book. please pick me

  168. Linda on January 11, 2014 3:08 pm

    I must start using my stash and not continue to buy yarn!!

  169. Tami on January 11, 2014 6:21 pm

    I plan on getting all of my WIP and putting numbers on them. Once I do that, I will put the numbers in a bag and pull a number out and focus on that WIP until that one is done. So it’s all up to fate on what is going to get done and when.

  170. Lorinda on January 11, 2014 8:38 pm

    This year, I would like to begin making items for people I love and have a “stash” of completed items ready so no one will have to wait for me to finish a gift.

  171. Cheryl on January 12, 2014 1:54 am

    Trying to use my stash and finish some
    projects that I have started.
    Please count me in for a chance to win.
    Thank you

  172. CathyH on January 12, 2014 8:20 am

    My goal for this year is to have plenty of art made for shows this Fall

  173. Kathy H on January 12, 2014 9:58 am

    I don’t like to set specific resolutions for the year, however I’m forever starting new projects and I’m determined to complete many of my UFO’s throughout 2014. This book looks wonderful. I’ve been in the mood for knitting…something about the cold weather! Lately, it’s been simple scarfs with interesting yarns. Fun and easy for end-of-the-day pick up!

  174. Catherine B on January 12, 2014 9:40 pm

    I am finally going to knit the afghan that my son has been begging me to knit for him. Yikes! Now that I’ve said it out loud, it will really have to happen.
